I'm probably very sensitive when it comes to finding my type of paper, it's feels like terror.
First I tried a bunch of drawing papers, Mi-Teintes, Strathmore (all the series), Canson Classic, and can't stand them. Maybe I just hate heavy weight paper?
And there's a kind that goes by the name sketching paper.. I first found my favorite: Daler-Rowney Cartridge paper 130 gsm, smooth (worked on this for some months), but then I bought a hardbound sketchbook by Dick Blick, and for now it's my best paper.
I don't have a clue why I like this particular paper so much, but at least it's not to heavy and textured...?
What's wrong with me, can anyone understand what I'm going through?
